Happy National Haiku Day!

I recently told someone that I hate all holidays and do not have a favorite. I forgot about one. I DO have a favorite holiday and it is today, April 17th, National Haiku Day!!!

I celebrated by sharing haikus on social media today. I also sent a few select people Haiku text messages. A very small number of people only got Haiku texts all day and no texts in any other form. I am not sure what these people’s level of contentment is with this, but I am positive that mine is at Level 100 and they love me, so they’ll deal with it!

Haikus are so fun! So easy to write. They don’t have to make sense. In fact, if they don’t make sense, they somehow seem more deep. They can be serious, silly, and utter nonsense. I just love them so, so much!

I wrote Haikus for a few days just because of this fabulous holiday this week. In honor of National Haiku Day, I give you this year’s haikus…

I love you so much

I hope you have a good day

Happy haiku day!

It is Haiku day

So, I’m talking in Haikus

That’s all I’ve sent them!

Anger. Resentment.

Process. Meditate. Center.

Love. Happiness. Peace

It’s so hard to write

In short haikus all the time

But it keeps texts short!

I get so confused

These thoughts running through my mind

Please shut it all off

My children are cute

They make me laugh a lot too

I think I’ll keep them

Your heart is right here

In each of your three children

Your legacy lives

I should be asleep

Instead I am up writing

Haikus are awesome

Sometimes I forget

I reach out to talk to you

To hear you once more

He doesn’t play games

For him, there is not a need

For he is a king 👑

We silently judge

We smile, are polite & nice

We are all guilty

I wait and I watch

For something. For Anything

I wait and I watch

She doesn’t play games

She has real, pure intentions

She has a good heart

This is all too much

Sometimes I struggle a lot

I Can do this alone


Broken. Picking up pieces.

Thriving together.

My feelings are mine

Others I cannot control

I must Remember

Elearning is dumb

Technology is awesome

I’m out of patience

You cannot control

How other people may feel

Always omit Love

Happy I am now

Haikus sound like Yoda speech

I am a Jedi

Love, Light, Happiness

Spread through the entire world

Smile for you are loved.

I am so sorry

For things that I may have done

To make you so sad

Omit Love & Light

That is my whole life mission

Love & Light to you

Of course, I brought my kids in on the fun too! Two of my boys enjoyed it, one wrote a haiku reluctantly. I will let you decide which one did that!

Jess Jr. (8):

I hope you are rich

I hope you like haiku day

Plz have a good day!

Jack (13):

I don’t like haikus

Don’t want to do one right now

I don’t like haikus

Charlie (6):

I love my mommy

I love my mommy so much

I love my mommy

Happy National Haiku Day!


~Love & Light, Sarah
